    I'm dissappointed to find myself sat on a 158 which still has the crappy Chapman seats. One would have hoped that these would have been replaced before the proper ones, but no.

    It's hard to think of a refurbishment programme that's more arse about face.

    I think 815 - 817 still have them seats. I don't think any other Northern 158s still have them. Possibly 842/3 but not sure.

    Correct, the ones that went to Northern straight from Arriva Wales. I'm not sure if 872 might have them too?

    Busy day but the Crewe to Neville hill now cancelled.
    https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/K06106/2020-02-15/detailed
    The Holbeck Neville Hill presumably 333 006 (there since 18Jan). A return working for another 333 either remaining 005 or 016 is https://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/K00223/2020-02-15/detailed.

    Have Doncaster repainted what was presumably returning 150 215 (there since 9th Dec) as well as the usual PRM mods.
    Any idea of other unit numbers.
    Thanks in advance

    I’m pretty sure 872 was from FGW (ex Wessex Trains)

    Not sure, the HT and NL units seem to crop up on any 158 diagram

    Getting through the 323s now, shouldn't be many left on the northern side.

    Think 223 - 225 will be done last as they have luggage racks and will be probably taken out to add more seats.

    Thanks for todays numbers too from works.
    I has 150 124 and 125 as already being PRMed and interior refreshed so perhaps the visits to Crewe for warranty or additional work.
    Also I had 150 215 as returning from Doncastef on 14th.
    Interestingly I estimate that Northern have (excluding pacers) 33 units including the 22 in works left to PRM and 95 for the various phases of interior refresh.

    158815-817/842/843/872 all have chapman seats fitted from their Wales and West refurb. They came from either Wessex Trains (815-817/872) or ATW (842/843) and had identical interiors. 871 was temporarily with Northern at this time before moving on to Scotrail (see below).

    867-871 also had Chapmans from their Wales and West then Wessex days. These were retained by Scotrail and were additionally fitted to 782/786/789. All these units are now refurbished with new seats.
